We booked the bar upstairs for a big celebration. Guests, aged from 12 to 95, came and went throughout the evening. There was singing alongside the grand piano, chatting, eating finger good, cups of tea and sandwiches and drinking and then dancing until 2.45am. Kelly...and Laura ensured the pre-planning was thorough and the team was well briefed on the night.The staff, including Marco, Chips, Luke, Pappi and floor and door staff couldn't have been more helpful in looking after us and their kindness and assistance to our guests of all ages and abilities was hugely appreciated. Thank you for helping us organise such a memorable gathering.More

I decided to celebrate my birthday at The Odeon because I've been there in a corporate event and I really like the place, the atmosphere is just amazing, staff are all very friendly, and to be honest, there is no better place in my opinion....I called to make a reservation and I spoke to Laura, she was so professional and easy going, just took my reservation with no hassle, even tho it was for 22 people, she asked me where I would like to be seated with my guests, she was just superb. On the the reservation date, I was running late, and I called the restaurant to inform that I would be 15-20 minutes late, the guy who picked the phone (can't remember his name) was very polite and confirmed that my reservation would be held, that gave me a peace of mind as I was afraid to miss my reservation. When I get in the venue, the host was waiting and asked my name and drove me to the space they reserved to me and it could not be better, space for everyone to seat... They allowed me to bring a cake as it was my birthday, when I was there, Trinity she just came up asking me if I would like to store the cake in the fridge as it would take a while to eat it, she was very very very polite and efficient, every 20 minutes or so, she walked my guests asking myself and them if everything was okay, if they needed anything else (She just went beyond) Around 9:30pm Trinity came asking me if I would like her to bring the cake and we agreed that she could do it at 10pm and at 10pm the cake was there, she also provided the right number of cutlery and napkin even no one asking her to do that, I have no words to thank not only her but all staffs whom made my birthday memorable, my guests loved the place, service and food. I wish I could give a thousand stars to the restaurant and it's staffs, I have absolutely nothing to complain about that moment on Saturday night, thanks all, thanks Trinity for making my birthday so special.More

Headed to Odeon for dinner on our last night and was very impressed! Dined between mon-thurs so got their midweek early bird menu which is really good value for money. We had the two course meal but shared the starter and dessert - the highlight...being the supreme chicken, really full of flavour and very well presented. They have a very affordable deal on selected cocktails which I took advantage of! Also our waitress on the night, Trinity, was extremely polite and very on the ball throughout. A lovely way to end our trip.More

My wife and I just arrived on a transatlantic flight from Miami yesterday afternoon, and rather than take a nap after we checked in to our cottage south of the city, we decided to take the Luas Green Line tram into the city to walk...around a bit. While the tram was picking up passengers at the Harcourt stop, I noticed The Odeon from the window and it's sign for an early-bird dinner and drink specials. It looked like a very nice place so I kept it in the back of my mind. We didn't get off the tram at the time, but later that afternoon as we were getting hungry (and more tired, lol) I remembered The Odeon, so we got off at that stop on our back to our residence, and what a great choice that turned out to be! As I noted in my title, the atmosphere inside is very nice, almost akin to a private club (especially since it was only 5:00pm and we were the first to arrive for happy hour and dinner). My wife and I both ordered the two-course prix fixe dinner for €22 and both courses were delicious as well as presented beautifully. I enjoyed two pints of Guinness (€11 total) while my wife ordered the Lana Turner cocktail for €6. I'm going to keep this review short as I'm still a bit jet-lagged and need to go out and get some coffee as I am writing this early the following morning from our very nice experience at The Odeon.More

After taking what seemed to be a lifetime to choose a venue to host my 50th Birthday celebration, I finally went with my gut instinct and chose this very stylish bar/pub. I was helped every step of the way by kelly, the events coordinator through...emails. Although Dublin was my birth city, I had left more than 30 years ago and was completely unfamiliar with the night life and so dealing long distance with Kelly was paramount to being able to carry off a celebration worth having. So, the night arrived and the venue was revealed to me for the first time. My first impression was that I was so excited with its theatrical decor, grandeur and opulence that it immediately lifted my spirits and so I knew it was going to be a great evening. I wasn’t wrong, the food was just perfect – the service from the floor staff was excellent and the music was tantalising, enough for us all to dance the night away. Easy to give a top recommendation if you have the chance to visit.More
